Actress Jacqueline Fernandez, who was recently summoned for questioning in a money laundering case, has come under fire on social media after photos with an extortionist named Shekhar Chandra Shekhar surfaced.
Jacqueline was first summoned by the New Delhi Enforcement Directorate in August for questioning in a 200 million Indian rupees fraud and extortion case.
Jacqueline was also questioned for four hours just days after co-star Nora Fathi was summoned in the same case.
According to Indian media, the case was registered on the complaint of a woman named Aditi Singh, who claimed that a man had called a senior law ministry official and assured her release on bail of her husband, who had been arrested in a case for money.

Aditi said that since June 2020, she has paid Rs 200 crore to Chandra Shekhar in 30 installments and was told that the money would be deposited in the funds of the ruling BJP.
Skash Chandra Shekhar, who was with Jacqueline in the leaked photo, has already been named in 21 fraud cases and Rohini was in jail at the time.
The Central Agency raided a mansion worth Rs 8.25 million and several luxury cars near the sea in Chennai in connection with a money laundering case against Skash. Shoes, clothes and bags of high-end labels like Louis Vuitton and Chanel worth Rs 200 million were also seized.
Jacqueline Fernandez from Sri Lanka rose to fame in Bollywood in 2011 with the movie Murder 2. She was last seen in the ghost police.
